The Recorder: Legal Industry ‘Hackathon’ Awards Ideas for Combating Bias, Promoting Diversity

November 05, 2018

The University of California, Hastings College of Law, hosted the second Diversity in Law Hackathon. This event featured teams of attorneys and students tasked with addressing diversity and inclusion challenges in the legal industry. The teams first met in July in Chicago and then reconvened at UC Hastings to pitch their ideas. O’Melveny partner Greta Lichtenbaum’s team, the Bias Busters, pitched the winning idea – an app designed to “interrupt implicit bias during the talent development cycle.”
